Be Prepared – The German DPAs will start random GDPR audits

The Data Protection Supervisory Authorities for the German states of Lower Saxony and Bavaria recently announced that they will carry out random audits to check compliance with the GDPR.

The Data Protection Supervisory Authorities (“DPAs”) for the German states of Lower Saxony and Bavaria recently announced (related information can be found here and here) that they will carry out random audits to check compliance with the GDPR.

In July 2018, the DPA for Lower Saxony reached out to about 50 companies with a questionnaire. The questionnaire focused on the following topics: How has the company prepared for the GDPR? How were the records of processing prepared and how will they be maintained? What are the legal bases for the processing of personal data, including sample consent forms? How are data subject rights addressed? What technical and organizational measures are in place? How are DPIAs carried out?
